This chapter examines the works about the relevance of time and knowledge in Indian political thought by Indian academics. It analyses works that question the purity, priority, and universality of European modernity, and those that show the political entanglement of the discipline of history. It also evaluates research literature that investigates the idea of a singular world history governed by the logic of capitalism and those that sought to recover histories suppressed by the ‘nationalist temporal scheme’. This chapter also considers the distinctiveness of the experience of postcolonial societies and the entanglement of epistemologies and hierarchies of power.

Keywords:   Indian political thought, time, knowledge, European modernity, political entanglement, history, world history, capitalism, postcolonial societies, hierarchies of power
